in the middle of the night it can be frustrating. it's hard to turn off and go back to sleep. intermezzo is the first and only prescription sleep aid approved for use as needed in the middle of the night when you can't get back to sleep. it's an effective sleep medicine you don't take before bedtime. take it in bed only when you need it and have at least four hours left for sleep. do not take intermezzo if you have had an allergic reaction
2:24 am
to drugs containing zolpidem, such as ambien. allergic reactions such as shortness of breath or swelling of your tongue or throat may occur and may be fatal. intermezzo should not be taken if you have taken another sleep medicine at bedtime or in the middle of the night or drank alcohol that day. do not drive or operate machinery until at least 4 hours after taking intermezzo and you're fully awake. driving, eating, or engaging in other activities while not fully awake without remembering the event the next day have been reported. abnormal behaviors may include aggressiveness, agitation, hallucinations, or confusion. alcohol or taking other medicines that make you sleepy may increase these risks. in depressed patients, worsening of depression, including risk of suicide, may occur. intermezzo, like most sleep medicines, has some risk of dependency. common side effects are headache, nausea, and fatigue. so if you suffer from middle-of-the-night insomnia, ask your doctor about intermezzo and return to sleep again.

2:33 am
stopping the play dead in its tracks. >> it was a weird unprecedented moment. the break energized the niners apparently and they scored 17 points in less than five minutes, but the ravens, in the end they hang on and take the super bowl championship. final score 34-31. >> we have a team that no matter what the situation we're going to overcome it to the best of our ability. it's kind of fitting that we've won it like that today. >> i just knew with that -- with jim harbaugh being on the other sideline and all those years that we've been together that that game was going to be a dog fooitd right till the end. >> things were working in the first half. we just didn't finish our drives a couple of times and that was the difference in the game. >> and then battled right on the brink of winning it. and it was a heck of a football game. >> afterwards the coaches, the harbaugh brothers, met on the field. each saying how proud they were of the other. nice family moment there. but john of the ravens later

and now to breaking news from southern california, where there's been a deadly bus crash. at least eight people were killed when the bus hit a pickup truck and a car. the accident happened on a rural mountain roadside about 80 miles east of los angeles. dozen of people were treated at the scene or taken to nearby hospitals. the bus was apparently returning to tijuana after a trip to big bear. and the california crash comes less than a day after a bus carrying 42 high school students and their chaperones slammed into a boston overpass. most of the injured have been released from the hospital, but one person is still in critical condition. the driver claims he was relying on gps at the time of the accident and didn't realize he wasn't supposed to be on that road. we turn to that tragic shooting of a former navy s.e.a.l. and his friend at a texas gun range. the shooting suspect has now been identified as an iraqi war vet named eddie ray routh. he's been held on two counts of capital murder. the "dallas morning news" reports that routh was hit with

a stun gun byards yesterday after he refused to return his meal tray. also a tense police standoff is entering day seven in alabama, with a gunman holding a 5-year-old little boy in an underground bunker. jimmy lee dykes is said to be making the child as comfortable as possible, allowing police to send down crackers, even a hot wheels car. we're told that dykes has demanded that a reporter be sent down to speak with him. meanwhile, funeral services were held yesterday for the school bus driver dykes is accused of shooting. you have to wonder the psyche of that little boy. seven days down there now. no end in sight. and according to some reports, that bunker is well stocked. this could drag on for weeks and weeks. >> the only thing that we worry about is the little boy and that he's being kept as comfortable as possible. that's all we can hope and pray for at this point. and the fact the police are asking us to prarks it's hard to take. police in turkey are questioning at least 11 suspects in the death of a woman who
3:07 am
vanished before she was returned to home. she suffered a fate'll blow to the head. she was seen on surveillance video walking through a mall. detectives are still trying to figure out why her passport and her cell phone were left behind in her hotel room. top leaders of the boy scouts could soon announce a decision on whether to lift a ban on gays. meetings begin today in texas. president obama, who is honorary chairman of the scouts, tells cbs news he is in favor of opening the scouts to all. >> a bus driver or a cop. can we close some of those loopholes -- my attitude is gays and lesbians should have access and opportunity the same way everybody else does. in every institution and walk of life. >> the president kicks off a major push on gun control later today when he travels to minneapolis department to continue to talk up that issue. police in pennsylvania are trying to figure out how a 6-year-old managed to take her mother's car out for a drive. they say the little girl
3:08 am
apparently wanted to visit her dad, who lives not too far away. rami hawkins was shoveling snow when he looked up to see the bmw coming right at him. and we're not going to hear from him. oh, maybe we are. >> i was like stop, stop, stop. she looked at me and she took back off and she stopped again. and i started running up the hill telling her to -- >> so anyway, before it was all over with, the child driver hit a parked car and a light pole. she was shaken up but she was not seriously hurt. and the whole deal here is that her parents are separated and she missed her dad and she wanted to go see him. and the gentleman that we kind of let you hear was basically the guy that saw this happen, ran after her, and tried to get her to stop. >> that's what i meant a second ago about the sweet motivation behind that story. just a girl who wanted to see her daddy. that's a tough one. but glad no one was injured. >> and she's in a heap of trouble. >> divorce always tends to be tough on the kids above all else.
3:09 am
>> always. >> with that, here's a look at your monday weather. we have some showers and mountain snow in the northwest. from the dakotas to chicago, cleveland and philadelphia. showers from the gulf coast into little rock and memphis. warming up in the southwest. >> near 60 in colorado springs and 72 in phoenix. 20 for much of the midwest. 30s from boston to baltimore. and after weeks of controversy it looks like beyonce has silenced all but most of her critics. >> boom. beyonce's super bowl performance -- >> i didn't write that. >> her performance proved to all the naysayers, all the haters that if nothing else she can sing and put on a hell of a show, which my ex-wife did last night. she belted out a string of her hits during the 13-minute halftime set, starting with "love on top." and as many speculated, she was joined on stage by her destiny's child bandmates. >> for 3 1/2 seconds. and then she booted them off. >> because she has always been the star and that's it.
3:10 am
>> and she was like okay, ladies, i got this. >> everybody remembers diana ross. you remember the other two supremes? i think not. >> then why bring them out for three seconds? why parade them around, have them at her backup singers for three seconds and then boot them out? >> because her coat tails are probably their best chance at exposure. just saying. >> wow. >> they were never the superstar. beyonce was. and i like the other two. >> wow. >> let's be real, though. it was a good show. in the press conference. and last night. >> she barley sang the first couple of songs. she had them on there for three seconds and then she booted them off. the ending was weak. she was just laying there. >> you and -- need to start dating. >> because we know what's going on. >> haterade. coming up. the ad cbs did not want you to see during the game last night. >> and super bowl highlights that made this championship go down in the record books. you're watching "world news now." and beyonce's show was not that -- >> love you, b.

3:15 am
you called the ravens months ago. boom. you got it right. >> look, this was an outstanding game. the first question you have to ask is where were the 49ers in the first half? >> amen, yes. >> down 21-6 at the half. penalized early in this game. some uncharacteristic mistakes. on their first drive they get a holding penalty, called back a big play. then a big offsides on the ravens' opening drive enables them to get a touchdown instead of what would have potentially been a field goal. and right out of the gate you could see the 49ers just came out flat in this game. >> yeah. >> everybody's going to point to the play at the end of the game, which we'll get to, but it had a lot more to do with what happened in the first 30 minutes and 12 seconds of this game than it did the final four downs for the 49ers. >> also i think they just dug themselves too big a hole to get out of. they came close at the end but maybe it was a little too little too late? >> yeah. and it's too narrow thinking or too short-sighted to say one play decided this game. it wasn't one play that decided this game. it was many plays in this game that decide td for the 49ers. first of all, start with the 21-6 and you look at what the ravens are doing in this game, up 21-6 right out of halftime
3:16 am
you get jacoby jones. who would have seen this coming? 108 yards. first it was 109. then they decide td was 108 yards. takes it to the house. and zwlauthat just sends -- it d like a boxer. it looked like in a boxing match when a fighter just finally gets knocked out. and then what happened? he gets the power going out in the stadium. who could have seen this happening at the stadium? >> twitter and facebook were lighting up with light-filled jokes in new orleans. but it did change the momentum. >> there were like 350,000 tweets when the power went out. the lights still out. john harbaugh's lit because he can't figure out what's going on. the 49ers have been in this situation before. they come out after the power outage, they look like a completely different team. >> that's right. they found the lights. >> they did. they get back in this game, get themselves an opportunity late. a fourth down and goal from the 5 yard line. and the 49ers have their opportunity here. they're going to say that this is holding or this is pass interference. at the end of the day it's a good non-call. there's contact. the ball's overthrown.
3:17 am
still, my biggest bone of contention was jim harbaugh. you have to call time out before that fourth down play. you have one time out left. you've got a quarterback who started ten games in this league. call time out. >> he blew one earlier. >> and they blew yun earlier. you've got to call time out before that game. still, joe flacco, your super bowl mvp, it's going to be well deserved. >> big contract coming his way. >> six years, 120 million. >> nice call with those ravens. we'll be back with more after this. don't go far.
